Hi, ive been having this problem since i bought my swift gti 93, 4 months ago. My car idle goes low and eventually stalls at stops, like a traffic light or a stop sign, sorry for my english im from Argentina. Ive checked for vacuum leaks, iac valve is OK, TPS OK, maf is clean, check engine light is off, when i do the diag it throws me 1-2 , so it ok too im having a bad time figuring out what is causing my idle to go low at stops, ive have adjusted the idle screw several times (the one with the spring on it) but it keeps happening, to avoid having this problem all i can do is adjust the idle screw every time i drive, but im sick of it, i need to get this fixed for good, any suggestions? thank you! if you need any info just ask

ps: with the idle screw, i mean the one with the spring on it, the black one, and i think its not called idle screw, the idle screw is another one that ive never touched

To adjust your idle you need to adjust the idle screw which is accessed from the top of the throttle body.

There is a little flat black plastic cap that you remove and then use a flat screw driver to turn the screw underneath it. There is no spring to speak of.

The screw with the spring you are adjusting is for the closing of the throttle. There is a damper that presses against this screw to keep it from closing too quickly and you are adjusting that which you really shouldn't mess with.

Anyway look for the round black cap, pull it off and adjust the screw.. Should take you less than 3 mins to do.

Alright, thanks, they told me i need to re-adjust the screw with the spring to its default position, and calibrate my TPS again, ill try adjusting the idle screw and ill let you know if it gets better. Thanks!
